Why a Sherdil Re-Release?
Sherdil was initially released on March 23rd and the film did quite well at the box office. The action flick collected over 12 crore Pakistani rupees at the box office. Now, the recent screening during Eid holidays will give another boost to the earnings of the film.
The main cast of the movie also included Laila Zuberi, Sabeeka Imam, Samina Ahmed and Hassan Niazi alongside the lead cast of Mikaal Zulfiqar and Armeena Khan.
Pakistani films makers have recently shifted their focus towards patriotic-themed movies. The 2013 film Waar was the catalyst of this change. Recently released patriotic-themed movies include Yalghaar, Parwaz Hai Junoon and OperationO21. Another Pakistani movie Zarrar, which also stars Shaan Shahid, is gearing up for its release.
Sherdil was produced under the banner of NK Pictures, while it was produced and penned by Noman Khan. The directorial duties were performed by Azfar Jafri. Before Sherdil, Azfar
Jafri had directed films such as Janaan and Parchi.
